Loan factors to compare when applying

  • Is bad credit accepted? Lenders use more than just your credit when determining if you qualify for a loan. Even if you have bad credit, you may still qualify to borrow money based on your current financial situation and your gross monthly income.
  • Available online or in-store? Whether you want to visit a storefront or are content applying for a loan on a computer, you have plenty of options to choose from.Check our loan table for your online options or see the map below for where you can go to apply in the city of Lincoln.
  • What’s the turnaround time? Short-term lenders don’t follow the same stringent lending criteria as banks and other loan providors, so they tend to process loan applications faster. When you apply in-store, you may be able to get your loan on the same day. If you decide to visit an online lender, you should receive your loan as soon as the next business day.

Joe's cat needs expensive surgery

Imagine this scenario: Joe hadn’t been working long when his cat needed an emergency surgery. He’d never had a credit card and wasn’t sure of the process, but when he learned that his lack of credit history would likely end in rejection, Joe decided to opt for a payday loan.

He visited a lender’s storefront near his work and applied for a loan of $400. The contract stated he’d need to repay $460 within two weeks. Joe knew he could handle the fees and left a post-dated check with his lender. It was cashed on the due date with no problems, and Joe was able to get his cat the surgery she needed and stay out of long-term debt.
